Mark Wallinger at the Baltic

On a recent trip to Newcastle I visited the Baltic gallery. One of the main exhibitions was by Mark Wallinger a former Turner prize winner. His work included a numbered wall and 65,536 stones laid out on chess boards.

I particularly liked his explanation of the giant "I" on the front of the building. A self-portrait in Times New Roman which is as simple as it is large. Wonder which typeface others would consider to represent themself?
